Golden Globes 2019 Predictions: Who Will Win And Who Should Win
The 2019 Golden Globes will kick off the Hollywood awards season this Sunday night, and the ceremony will recognize the best in both movies and television from the past year. The approximately 100 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have cast their votes, and the winners in the film categories will most likely be strong contenders for the Oscars.
So, let’s take a look at the major categories and see who the biggest contenders are, who should win, and who will win, according to Variety .
Motion Picture - Drama
If Beale Street Could Talk
A Star Is Born
A Star is Born should win, and Variety says that the movie will win the award for Best Motion Picture - Drama. But, don’t count out Bohemian Rhapsody.
Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Crazy Rich Asians
Mary Poppins Returns
This category is wide open. But, the experts say that Green Book will win, even though Vice should come out on top. Also, don’t forget about The Favourite because it could be a surprise here.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama
Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born
Willem Dafoe, At Eternity’s Gate
Lucas Hedges, Boy Erased
Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
John David Washington, BlacKkKlansman
The critics believe that Rami Malek will win this award for his incredible portrayal of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury. But, many believe it should be Bradley Cooper because of his formidable performance in A Star Is Born.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama
Glenn Close, The Wife
Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born
Nicole Kidman, Destroyer
Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Rosamund Pike, A Private War
It looks like Lady Gaga will be adding another Golden Globe to her collection of awards. After winning a globe for her work on American Horror Story, it’s a safe bet to say that her film debut also impressed HFPA voters.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy
Christian Bale, Vice
Lin Manuel Miranda, Mary Poppins Returns
Viggo Mortensen, Green Book
Robert Redford, The Old Man & the Gun
John C. Reilly, Stan & Ollie
This category is all about Christian Bale for his work as Dick Cheney in Vice. Bale will most likely win this category. But, it is possible that Viggo Mortensen could pull off the upset.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy
Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns
Olivia Colman, The Favourite
Elsie Fisher, Eighth Grade
Charlize Theron, Tully
Constance Wu, Crazy Rich Asians
There is a lot of buzz around Olivia Colman, and the expectation is that she will win the Golden Globe and Oscar for her work in The Favourite . But, Emily Blunt is also a big contender, and could possibly come out on top in this category.
Best Television Series — Drama
The Americans (FX)
Killing Eve (BBC America)
For the last two years, a streaming series has won this category. And, most likely, Homecoming will win this time around and make it three years in a row. But, many believe that Killing Eve could come out on top, and there is also a chance that Bodyguard could surprise us all and win the award for Best Drama Series.
Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy
The Good Place (NBC)
The Kominsky Method (Netflix)
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon)
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel , a fast-talking period piece from Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, will be a repeat winner in this category. But, there is a lot of love for Barry and The Kominsky Method . So, one of those could be a dark horse this year.
Killing Eve star Sandra Oh and Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Andy Samberg will host the 71st Annual Golden Globes which air Sunday night on NBC.
